Personal Genomics

“This is where we are in the era of personal genomics: some modest amusement, a few interesting tidbits, a bit of useful information, but mostly the promise of much better things to come. The more people are allowed–encouraged, even–to experiment, the sooner that promise can be realized.” – Misha Angrist (in http://www.technologyreview.com/biomedicine/21250/) circa 02008
